While major incidents in the west make it to the news, such as the heart-wrenching Grenfell Tower fire in London (reminiscent of the 1970s film “The Towering Inferno”), causing global awareness and concern, a host of other disasters (some equally or even more severe) are also happening all over the world. These other incidents don’t receive the same media coverage. Sometimes it’s censorship but most times it’s just due to a lack of media and public interest.
Whatever the reality, while some people and incidents mean almost nothing to us, they mean the whole world to Abba Father. He sees everything. He sees the suffering. He sees the pain. One life lost is just as precious as the next. And He is a God of justice and His ears are attentive to our cries for mercy. Like the persistent widow in Luke 18, we should never stop asking, petitioning and praying, for God is watching over us…
“And will not God bring about justice for His chosen ones, who cry out to Him day and night? Will He keep putting them off? I tell you, He will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18: 7 & 8)
May our faith never waver. And may we be found faithful when our LORD Jesus returns.
